Abstract

Resilience is becoming an important and alternative response to provision of services in the state sector and has been the subject of much examination in the social sciences and psychology literature. In Information Systems development, resilience has often been treated as a non-functional requirement and little or no work is aimed at building resilience in end-users through systems development. The question of how values and resilience (for the end-user) can be incorporated into the design of systems is an on-going research activity in user centred design but remains largely absent from method engineering research and its formal area. In this paper we offer a critique of the intrinsic relationship between values and resilience, evaluate it within the context of an ongoing software development project and contribute a formal model of co-design based on a significant extension of Abstract Design Theory.We argue that value-sensitive co-design enforces better resilience in end-users.
